    My instructor was VERY helpful. It took me a few lessons to grasp the concept and he did not give up on me. He tried many different ways to explain the concept and was always patient and understanding. I felt stupid not knowing how to do what he was explaining, but he was very encouraging and motivating, that I would grasp it and I eventually did!

    The instructor was very knowledgeable and friendly. Small classes are great for individual attention and schooling is affordable compared to other private schools.

    Very informative. I had an incredible teacher who was patient, knowledgable and all round awesome. I came into the course not knowing much and finished with a gigantic pool of information and skills making me feel equipped to go out and enter the dj world.

    Jeanne Kietzmann

    I feel like I learned everything I could have possibly learned. i have no questions that are unresolved. i learnt more in this class than in a year of studying on my own. I just will miss the class.

    Malik Sterling

    The course is really straight forward and the instructor is the coolest ever! He can answer any question that you wanna know about DJing. Tell him how you wanna mix, he will show you easily.
